Imagine…Being Your Husband’s Very Own Baby Machine

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 10, 2007

Holly, at Feministe, blogs about a new Nintendo DS game called “Imagine Babies:”

That’s right… it’s a game about TAKING CARE OF BABIES! I’ll give you one guess who it’s aimed at. OK, I’ll just tell you: it’s part of a series of games aimed at girls from the ages of 8 to 14, from video game giant Ubisoft — better known as the publisher games like Splinter Cell, Myst, Rayman, and Prince of Persia. According to their press release, the other titles in the series will include Imagine™ Fashion Designer, Imagine™ Animal Doctor, Imagine™ Master Chef, and Imagine™ Figure Skater.

Wow, Imagine™ all the things a girl can do! Making food, and making clothes, and making babies!! What’s next, Imagine™ Shoe Shopping and Imagine™ Housecleaning?

YearlKos; AKA, the White Citizens YearlyKouncil

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 10, 2007

African American Political Pundit blogs about the YearlKos:

Come on folks, stop beating around the bush. Stop sugar coating it. Let’s stop playing Games. Let’s stop intellectualizing white blogger racism. Let’s call it the way it is, The Democratic Presidential candidates just went before the Yearlykos a 21st century White Citizens YearlyKouncil. An exclusive club of middle aged whites guys, who sit around playing the “liberal card” with all but a few black and Latinos who attended the YearlyKos event.

Serious Women Bloggers

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 10, 2007

Lynn Allen, who blogs at Evergreen Politics, writes about feminism and YearlKos:

So, I’d been wondering what the heck was going on in the world when women’s issues – equal pay, choice, the lack of public support for parenting – don’t get discussed in the public arena; when pharmacists could get away with refusing to dispense pills for women, when women candidates lose in a blue wave year.

I talked to several national women bloggers at YearlyKos about why they don’t write about women’s issues.  Across the board they said, “We won’t be taken seriously.”

What is it with this?
